The Sun newspaper, the biggest selling tabloid in Britain, is to start charging for its online content later this year, according to press reports.

The Guardian newspaper cited Mike Darcey, the chief executive of News International, as saying the parent company's current position – which allows millions of readers to get the Sun's content for free – was "untenable".

The Sun is read by about 30 million users every month online. Its daily sales are 2.4 million.
